Back in February, I wrote an article explaining how the Obama family were Mac-users. TUAW reported last Friday that on election night, the winning ticket was seen using Apple products. Specifically, Vice President-Elect Joe Biden was pictured looking at information on a MacBook Air while holding a 3G iPhone, while President-Elect looked on.
TUAW's article "Obama Team Chose Apple on Election Night" predicts that "the Obama administration could become the most technologically-savvy presidency so far." I believe that goes without saying, as evidenced by his groundbreaking, innovative use of technology during his campaign. It is encouraging to hear that President-Elect Obama plans to have a Chief Technology Officer, another first. (And yes, I would gladly serve if asked.)
Since other world leaders, including Russian President Dimitry Medvedev and Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, use Macs, I am glad that soon-to-be President Obama will be using one too. I would hate for the fate of the free world to be dependent upon a Windows machine. I mean, a world war breaking out because our leader had to deal with a "blue screen of death" would be tough to swallow, wouldn't it?
